Happy Monday, gang! So…I had all of these lofty aspirations for this week’s Placecard of the Week, but the end result just sort of fell short of what I had envisioned. Normally, I would just recreate something over and over again, until I decided that it was “just right”, which I started to do. However, in the end, I was just too pooped from a busy-bee kind of week, that I left it as is. I hope you won’t mind.
It went something like this… I dug through my masses of paper, and all I could dig up was plain shades of blue paper. Okay. I decided I would make due. Then I found some vellum paper in my stash to write the name on, which I thought would add a nice whimsical touch. Hmm…not so much, mostly because you can’t tell whatsoever that it’s vellum in the picture. Again, I decided to make due. Next, I pulled out a container of super fine, powdery glitter (ahh, so pretty) to add a swirling, snowy effect. I also added glitter to some snowflake buttons that I just happened to have on hand. Who doesn’t, right? The end result: a super sparkly (I love sparklies), fairly acceptable placecard. BUT, I couldn’t get an accurate picture of it, so I just sort of stared at it for awhile and decided that I wasn’t so crazy about it.
I decided to create an entirely new placecard….with even more sparklies…
…Which I didn’t like either. Weird.
I think I’m going to sleep on it and see if I like either placecard better tomorrow. What do you think?
